Fear of Peas

(Thanks to, yes, Claire Martin)

I'm just afraid to be in the same room as people who have eaten them.

Now Louise, 35, is to undergo therapy as part of a TV show in a bid to cure her irrational fear.

Let me be first to say that that sounds like a great idea - not!

Related to the birth of her daughter, eh?

[deletes comment involving where babies come from and "pea-holes"]

I think the writer misunderstood - after hearing "My Humps" about a billion times, I'm kind of scared of them too.

Shades of the movie "Spellbound".

Can't blame her. All those healthful vitamins and nutrients. You're much better off eating Cheetos.

Did she happen to see The Exorcist? Repeat after me. It's only a movie. It's only a movie.

All we are saying, is give peas a chance...

Hrm... I wonder if I can develop an irrational fear of work and go on short term disability?
*wanders off to read the fine print on her medical coverage*

And people call my arachnaphobia ridiculous so my heart goes out to her in the whole 'lack of sympathy department'.

Rest in peas.

Imagine whorled peas...

I delt with my fear of peas by feeding them to the dog.

Name for a redneck band: "Smoke and Mullets"

Louise Arnold anagrams to Residual Loon.

Speaking of the Exorcist, we have a signed anniversary movie release poster here at work. It says "Sweet Dreams, Love, Linda Blair".

Peas, why'd it have to be peas?

Following Ms. Arnold's hypnotherapy, she celebrates success with her counsellors by posing for a group picture.

It reminds me of how you catch a polar bear. You drill a hole in the ice, and surround it with peas. When the bear comes along to take a pea you kick him in the ice hole...

I eat my peas with honey
I've done it all my life
They do taste kind of funny
But it keeps them on the knife

afka"tt" - I remember the third line being "It makes the peas taste funny". An old favorite!

If it's related to the birth of her daughter, mebbe it's 'cuz the little girl peas her pants ... merely wonderin' ...

I wonder what it will take to appease these demons.

C'mon people, get real.

She has a really bizarre phobia and now she has a reality show??? WTD??

Can you spell hype?


There are all different kinds of peas. I think she just wants her 15 minutes of fame.

"Petrified Cobwebs" would make an even better band name.

I'm guessing that TV show is a rip-off of the game mentioned here.


When I saw the headline, I thought it was going to be about a girl I knew in college. She lived on my floor in the dorm and was absofreakinglutely scared of peas. She wouldn't even go into the dining room when they were on the menu.

But, we brought them to her. One time, we took some back to the room and put them into the freezer of our mini-fridge. When they got hard, we rolled them under her door when she was along and studying. I can still hear the screaches.

Oh, and her major? Entomology; the study of insects.

Go figure.

Another thing he couldn't have made up. I don't know if I've ever heard of anything more strange. Truly!

Tonight on Geraldo: Whack job or lunatic - YOU decide.

Kudos and a *SNORK* to Punkin Poo for the most perfect line so far: "give peas a chance".

*SNORK* again.
